Martinsried. On March 23, 1973, the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) in Martinsried was ceremoniously opened by the speech of Richard Naumann, the mayor of Planegg at the time. Today, it is clear that the founding of the institute served as the seed of crystallization for one of the largest and most innovative locations for research in the life sciences in Germany with an international reputation. Now, about 50 years later, the MPIB will celebrate its anniversary in a ceremony on April 24, 2023, starting at 3:00 pm. Information for press representatives can be found below.

We are looking forward to speeches by the Minister of State Florian Herrmann, the Mayor of Planegg Hermann Nafziger and the President of the Max Planck Society Martin Stratmann. Highlight of the event will be the signing of the golden book of the municipality of Planegg, anecdotes of our founding director and Nobel laureate Robert Huber, as well as a panel talk. After the ceremony, the exhibition 50 Years MPI of Biochemistry will be opened in the foyer of the main building.
